Fruit and vegetables: best quality for best price

pistachio peas | Jun 8, 2014 01:07 PM

Where do you shop for fruits and vegetables? I consume a lot of them and here is my dilemma:
-the Wedge/Seward co-op too expensive
-Kingfield farmer's market - barely has anything at the moment, rarely has fruit
-Rainbow (in Uptown): terrible quality, too depressing to go in there
-Lund's (in Uptown): pretty bad quality for the price (and I rarely shop there for other things)
-Kowalski's (on Lyndale) - I stop in here a lot of convenience but I find the prices astronomical.
-Trader Joe's - great for a lot of things but not fruit and vegetables
-Whole Foods - great quality and very convenient for me, but too expensive
-Cub at Nicollet & 66th - I find it's pretty good quality but I don't buy milk/eggs/meat/cheese other things there. Should I just suck it up and make this my spot in combination with the Kingfield Market?

I'd love some to hear people's thoughts on this.
